Hammers duo help England

West Ham United youngster Blair Turgott was the match-winner as England beat Scotland to claim the Victory Shield for the ninth successive season.

The Young Lions lifted the Under-16 crown at Tynecastle In Edinburgh on Thursday after Turgott scored on the hour mark. England had needed to come from behind after Jack Grimmer put Scotland in front midway through the first half. Arsenal's Zak Ansah quickly levelled and after that it was all England with Turgott and his Hammers club-mate Matthias Fanimo behind most of the visitors' best work.

Turgott and Fanimo had both scored in the previous 2-0 win against Northern Ireland and it was no surprise when the former found the winning goal, although a point would have been enough to secure the trophy. England had won the previous eight editions with Robert Hall having been part of last season's U16 set-up and past teams including the likes of Trevor Brooking, Joe Cole and Glen Johnson
